I come in peace What do fans think about the opproach being considered by some coach's , about resting key players against bigger clubs., So they are fit to go against so called smaller clubs Do you think we should concider this.

That's a new take on games so early into a season personally think it will set us back further than we are now

No
What teams have adapted the resting players.
The C C may be seen as a resting players exercise, but you need as many 2 points as you can get.
Looking at the first 2 games and on present form you would expect Wakey. Salford. Leigh and HKR to be playing in there own mini league.

Definitely not, we need to be looking to try to win every game. Obviously the majority of clubs will have to be off their game but we need to take every opportunity of points.
The reality is we're already in a relegation battle and need to be in that mindset.

Not at this stage of the season with 95% of players available

Even a hint of thinking this by Webster got him a permanent mark against his name with many fans.

For me, we are two games in. We have a new half back that needs game time with Miller.
We play our strongest team every time.

In theory yes but in practice no. Webster tried that and look what happened.

Wakey have had a habit of coming up with the big win against the odds and get rolled over by the so called smaller clubs so it’s a defo no from me.We need our best and hopefully settled team on the park every week only then will we get some form of consistency that we as a club are striving for .To be honest usually the big teams bring out the best in us over the years and had the privilege of seeing some crackers .Very hard with the spectre of relegation hanging over us and the consequences that would have on the club to be able to chop and change a settled squad .Oh how a win against les cats would give us all a boost and a tentative step closer on that road to Wembley .

I disagree.

If we have a game coming up against Leigh, KR, Salford etc, we should be targeting these as more likely to win.
There would be no point in busting a gut to try and beat a team like Saints, to the detriment of taking points off lower ranked clubs.

Having said that, we're only 2 games in and planning to avoid relegation shouldn't be in anyone's mind just yet but, if things get a bit sticky, later in the season, then, for sure, we should be targeting certain games.

I dont know what targets Chester & Co have set for the season but, they will all be achievable at the moment and we should play accordingly.

The only target that we could have blown, so far, is the "win every game" :wink:
